The University of California at Berkeley Chorus and Orchestra; Roger Patterson, tenor; Allen Shearer, baritone; Michael Senturia, director; Christine Whittlesey, soprano; Robert Levin, piano

While finding my own way I should not like to give up anything that has ever been won in the way of subtlety, richness and complexity; yet I retain a taste for the simple and the vernacular. The qualities I value in music have to do with strong intent, the interaction of the small and the large and the will to make whole what seems disparate. What I hope continues to evolve in try work is a highly infected, pliable, elegant language.
